Chrissy Teigen’s third pregnancy is not as “easy” as the first two.

The 34-year-old author of the cookbook revealed in his Instagram Story on Tuesday that she had been put on a “serious bed rest” after not properly following the doctors’ orders.

Teigen, who is pregnant with her third child by musician John Legend, was put on vacation for the first time last week. But the model admitted that she misinterpreted what “bed rest” actually means.

“I’m in trouble now,” she said Tuesday.

“I really didn’t know that bed rest was in bed. I honestly thought bed rest was that you really had to really relax, stay home,” Teigen said, bedridden on Tuesday. “I thought it might be a couch break.”

Despite her “difficult pregnancy,” Teigen said she was “feeling good” and “trying to be as healthy as possible.”

“I’ll say I’ve probably been punished for so many conversations about how great the first two went. I was like, ‘Oh, yes, the pregnancy is great!’ “But now I understand,” she said. “I have anyone who thinks it’s not that great, but is very happy to carry this baby.”

With all the extra time in his hands, Teigen turned to his Twitter account to share an update from his first full day in bed.

“I’ve been in bed for everyone except 5 minutes in the last 24 hours,” she tweeted on Wednesday. “Here until next Tuesday. God, that’s kind of stupider than it sounds. Punishment that the first two pregnancies are easy.”

The newest addition will be joined by siblings Luna, 4, and Miles, 2.
